Enabling Software

Configurable, field-ready accelerators

We are entrenched in an era of heightened technology fluidity and turbulence because of digital -- driven in large part by the Internet of Things. To create robust and durable value the R&D organization needs to anticipate and respond to the next disruption. They need to move rapidly and cost effectivey on advancing thier technology roadmaps so they are digitally durable and sustainable. The R&D organization  must be able to quickly change direction in the product development process in response to competitive threats, market opportunities, new technology and shifting customer expectations.

Aricent has created a suite of Enabling Software Solutions that help companies master the right intelligent technologies so they can: 

  1. Drive Smart Outcomes via Smart Services – This is the goal and the starting point for defining and designing compeling outcomes that deliver new customer experiences and new revenue streams.
  2. Virtualize Everything – from chips to equipment to the customer experience, the objective is to combine hardware and software that delivers smart services that can be launched quickly and upgraded over the air.
  3. Embrace Unconventional Connectivity – to exploit the potential of IoT devices and the convergence of product and service platforms that are the foundation of the smart services
  4. Innovate Beyond the Speed of Things – by moving past Moore’s Law to utilize artificial intelligence and choreograph software and hardware that create richer user experiences in the  smart solutions.

Connectivity - Wireless Infrastructure

The wireless industry is continuing its evolution towards 5G as a plethora of hetergenous connectivity alternatives emerge to support low power devices and the Internet of Things (IoT). 

Some of our assets include: 

  • Aricent LTE eNodeB framework.  Complete Layer 2 and Layer 3 software functionality. Layer 2 (MAC, RLC, PDCP, eGTPU), Layer 3 (RRC, S1AP, X2AP, Cell/UE Call control), RRM, SON Agent and OAM.
  • Aricent LTE EPC framework: Complete LTE packet core software components consisting of Serving Gateway (SGW), PDN Gateway (PGW), Mobility Management Entity (MME), Home Subscriber Server (HSS) and Policy Charging Control Function (PCRF).
  • Multi-Technology Self-Organizing Networks (UNI-SON). Provides multi- RAT (GSM, UMTS and LTE), multi-deployment architecture support and multi-vendor compatibility to leverage the benefits of SON for 4G, 3G and 2G radio technologies.
  • WiFi offload (ePDG/SAMOG/TTG).  WiFi offloading of data for both LTE and 3G. It supports both Trusted (SAMOG) and un-trusted (ePDG) network for offloading and can connect to PGW or GGSN for data.
  • IMS Core. VoLTE IMS-CSCF Server supports collapsed Call Session Control Function (CSCF), enables high performance and is compliant to the GSMA IR92 standard. It consists of P-CSCF, I-CSCF & S-CSCF. It interfaces with external I-CSCF and P-CSCF servers for roaming subscribers and with external IMS network for calls to subscribers outside the network, and can run on virtualized hardware for IMS server in a cloud.
  • LTE in a Box.  eNodeB and EPC software and optionally IMS core (for VoLTE). It address the niches market, like Public safety, Search & rescue, Adhoc Remote network, Surveillance, etc.
